Via Conor Friedersdorf, this from David Pryce-Jones, about the travails of Mark Steyn, a writer who wants to write what he thinks, despite Canada's rules against such writing:

Maclean's, the prestigious Canadian magazine, published an extract from his well-known bestseller America Alone -- there's no doubting that he criticizes and even laughs at Islamists in the book -- whereupon assorted Human Rights Commissions in Canada fell on Mark and Maclean's: There's a code with a Section 13 that prevents free speech, and there is someone called Richard Warman, a former employee of the Canadian Human Rights Commission who has been a plaintiff on every single Section 13 case in the last six years. Where did this lord of the printed word spring from? He and several others badly wanted to suppress Mark, and they had Muslim accomplices.
